Salisbury Steak

Just could not take a stellar picture the both times I have made this in the past couple months.  However you could head over to One Perfect Bite for the original recipe and an amazing photo of it.  Mary, the author of the blog, is an amazing woman.  She has won recipes contests.  What does that say about the lady?  Damn. Good. Food.  This is no exception.  Delicious. I did say I made it twice over the past couple months, right?

Salisbury Steak
Recipe here from One Perfect Bite

Onion Gravy
3 large onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups low-sodium beef broth
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Salt and pepper

Meat Patties
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 cup cooked white rice
2  large egg yolk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 clove minced garlic
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon olive oil
My daughters dinner plate- second time I made it.
For the gravy: Saut√© onions in a skillet large enough to hold the gravy. Cook over medium-high heat, until onions start to brown, stirring occasionally.  When onions are a deep honey brown.  Carmelizing onions is a slow process but totally worth the time you take in doing so. Stir in flour and cook for about 2 minutes- you want the flour a bit browned too. Add wine, beef broth and tomato paste. Stir in cider vinegar. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat to low and keep warm.

For the patties: Mix ground beef, rice, egg yolk, salt, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, parsley and thyme in a bowl. Shape into 4 oval patties about 3/4-inch thick. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Sear patties about 3 minutes per side, or until a brown crust forms. Pour gravy over patties and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
